. that was back in 1960 when richard nixon and jfk. >> i think mr. nixon is an effective leader of his party. i would hope he would grant me the same. the question is which point of view, and which party do we want to lead the united states. >> mr. nixon would you like to comment on that statement? >> i have no comment. >> cenk: the people who listened on the radio thought nixon had one, but the people watching it on tv thought kennedy won. it appeared that the debate swung the election in favor of kennedy. ever since then, people have put a tremendous amount of weight on the debates. because of that everybody plays the expectations game. what is funny here is all of the republicans are saying oh my god, obama is going to win. >> mitt romney has the advantage because he has been through 20 of these debates. >> mitt romney is a business guy, and hasn't had a debate against a democrat in overten years. >> mitt romney is just in practice. >> having been through this much more recently than president obama, i think he starts with an advantage. >> i think barack obama will be formidable. >>

moments over the last 40-50 years of televised debates. john kennedy and richard nixon how nixon loft because he didn't wear make up and looked like he didn't shave. they thought he was dark and smarmy. turns out they were right, he was. >> whether was the al gore sigh, over and over again. [ sighs ] >> exactly. before that debate, al gore was five points ahead of george burke, after the sigh, he stalled out and george bush still lost that election, but he closed in close enough for the supreme court to make the call at home plate. but, my favorite, the absolute best debate moment of all lloyd benson, 1988 versus dan quayle. >> i have as much experience in the congress as jack kennedy did when he got the presidency. >> senator i served with jack kennedy. i knew jack kennedy. jack kennedy was a friend of mine. senator, you're no jack kennedy. [ cheers and applause ] >> that was really uncalled for senator. >> you're the one that was making the comparison, senator. >> oh, smack! >> i love that! >> and there's one more. let's keep them on a high note. there's one more not from a general

signed by president richard nixon who was viewed as a conservative. there seemed to be a consensus protecting the environment was important. what's happened to the consensus. why is even the notion of global warming under attack by the republican party and those on the right? >> i think it is not politically expedient. i think you know, people on that side of the aisle probably have a lot to gain from the status quo. and changing things the way we need to isn't necessarily convenient. but the truth is you know, i don't understand it. i don't understand it. science has been rejected on so many counts and things like the clean water act which make sense. before the clean water act was passed, the quality of water was governed by each state individually. and it wasn't working. rivers were catching on fire. the clean water act was passed. there were federal regulations governing the quality of our water. and things got a lot better and now we want to go back to how it was before which is clearly a system that doesn't work. >> eliot: it is staggering when you recognize how much the poli

1858 until 1960, john f. kennedy versus richard nixon, debates didn't play that big a role in presidential campaigns. there were no presidential debates. but you did have in primaries occasionally, squareoffs going on. interesting to even think about stats from minnesota rarely run for president -- stacken ran for president every four years. kennedy/nixon was the game changer in debate history. people that listened to it thought nixon won on radio but on television, john f. kennedy won. nobody was that happy with the debates. we had no debates in '64 '68 '72. came back in 1976 when jimmy carter ended up doing well because of gerald ford's famous gaffe. that's the big question. can you become gaffe-free? everybody is going to be looking wednesday night to see if there was a mistake made by either person. it puts a lot of pressure on the candidates. >> jennifer: you mention nixon and kennedy and those who saw the debate felt like kennedy won. what do you think is more important? what the candidates say or how they say it? >> i think it's how they say it. to be honest with you ta

nixon. the other was 2000 with george bush and al gore. i don't think this will change the nature of the campaign. i just wish president obama had showed up. scott in eugene, oregon. good morning scott. >> caller: good morning, bill. i agree with you. i don't think the debate last night really changed anything. i think the 47% video still really is the game changer in the campaign. and you know, early voting's already started in like ohio and iowa -- >> bill: thank god! >> caller: i think a lot of people have already made up their minds about romney and based on the analyses i've seen about how small the pie is of the undecided voters, i just don't think that there was enough last night -- >> bill: here's what will happen scott. republicans are going to have -- are going to have wind in their sails this morning right? they had just about given up on romney before last night. they needed -- they really needed romney to do well last night. otherwise, they would have just folded their tent. unfortunately, they got the boost last night that they needed. because romney did breathe new lif

lowest of any president since richard nixon. paul ryan is telling local cincinnati news it is okay because the money creates jobs but there's little evidence that it does anything for job creation. politico is pointing out some sketchy budget math. in paul ryan's plan. he quietly cut half a percent from medicare's annual growth rate and while that doesn't sound like much, without that money, the house budget plan would be in the red. back with more bill. stay with us.

. in the kennedy nixon debates, here if you watched it on tv, you might have thought that mitt romney won, be you check the fact checkers tomorrow you might think president obama won. >> john: i do think a few things are certain. number 1 you are going to see mitt romney boasting a lot for the next two weeks, and number two you'll see a whole different approach from the president to come back. >> cenk: yeah, apparently they were calling it the big bird debate. i thought it was the malaise debate for president obama. but mitt romney came at him from the left on several instances. on the dodd-frank issue, you let the big banks remain too big. like he cares. >> that's the etch-a-sketch-ificatoin. >> eliot: why didn't the president say, how are you going to keep them small? he didn't take him to task. he didn't challenge him. >> al gore: he also blamed obama implicitly for the fact that the dodd-frank regulations have not been put into effect for two years. the lobbyist on slot is responsible for that. >> cenk: i believe his top eight funners are all banks. so for mitt romney to pretend t

about the nixon debates, and when he got that hanky out and started wiping down, i thought i think he thinks he is on a role here. i think he was baited. i think obama did what he needed to do last night, and got romney to go etch-a-sketch. >> stephanie: certainly the fact checkers as usual had a field day this morning. >> yeah. >> stephanie: kevin in orange county, you are on the "stephanie miller show." >> caller: hey, stephanie. you are going to the 30-days to victory tour on sunday right? >> stephanie: yeah. >> caller: i'll be there in the orchestra, hopefully i'll see you. >> stephanie: somebody sprung for the fancy tickets didn't ya? >> caller: yeah, it will take me a year to pay them off. >> stephanie: yeah me too. >> caller: i think the seconds coming out of the debate probably a lot of the thoughts were that romney won, but like you are talking about in the couple of days afterwards the conversation about the debate obama is going to win. romney has been on the liberal, moderate, conservative side of almost every issue. and at some point america is going to have to say to you
